It is with great sadness that we share that Ralph Adams passed away on Friday. He was a wonderful person who was always generous with his time and knowledge and he left our industry better than he found it. Ralph was OESP's National President, a Service Manager at Parker Fuel Company in MD, an Oil Heat Cares board member, a teacher...but most of all, he was a dear friend and we are fortunate to have known him. Our deepest condolences to his wife Denise and all who loved him. He will be missed.

    Oh no! Very sad. Met him and took a few of his classes. Smart guy, always gave you his cell number and email with his classes and would talk and help anyone.

    There was an error rendering this rich post.

    Looks like he enjoyed life to the fullest in those pics. Hard to not like a person that rides motorcycles :)
    Godspeed Ralph.
